This paper deals with the measurement and the evaluation of cylindricity deviation of the rotational symmetrical workpiece. Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) with X-Ray tomography was used for the measurement. For the evaluation of the cylindricity deviation, we applied standard Gaussian cylinder. Data obtained by the measurement is compared using the VG Studio and Calypso software. At the end of this paper, the experimental data is presented.
